Aarif and JJ breakdown all the happening around the summer showcase tournament, which players stood out and how it could translate to an even better performance at the main camp. The guys also chat about which of the Avs could have a chip on their shoulder and how the team could build a winning culture that translates to the postseason. The show ends with a true feeling of nostalgia. All that and more on this edition of Hockey Mountain High: Your go-to Avalanche Podcast.
